Getting Hella Theatrical!

Monday, September 29, 2014

Hello friends!

It's crazy to think about all the amazing things I am able to finally experience since I moved to New York and it baffles my mind that I even get to be near and breathe the same air that so many wonderful, creative, intelligent people do. I will never get over it so when I get to go out for a full night of just life, it overwhelms me. 

One of these nights happened about a week ago when my sister was visiting. She used to live here in New York with me but now is in D.C. so it was amazing to get to see her. She got us tickets to see 'This Is Our Youth' on Broadway and bought us dinner before it. It was a really wonderful night and I thank her so much for it!

We started out the night at Casellula, a small wine and cheese eatery in Hell's Kitchen near the Theater District - hella fancy stuff. My sister had eaten there before and I thought it looked good so we went there! We got olives, a cheese I can't remember the name to and a delicious salami called 'Gin and Juice'. It was all SO good holy MOLY. 

We also got their Bruschetta  - with tomatoes and a delicious Ricotta cheese. 

We also shared a F**king fantastic mac and cheese that almost made me float up into heaven right then and there. My mouth is dripping with saliva just thinking about it, UGH.

After that delectable dinner, we headed over to the Cort Theatre to take our seats. 

I'm wearing a TopShop Lace Camisole, a black Mango cardigan, Uniqlo Skinny Jeans, and Gianni Bini sandals! 
We had awesome seats - the first row in the balcony - and so our view was perfect. I love being in the front row of the balcony because you feel super cool and have no one in front of you to block your eyes!

The play itself was incredible. It was really funny - laugh out loud at a lot of moments - and the cast did wonderful. Kieran Culkin was my favorite performance, it didn't even feel like I was watching a play when he was saying his lines. It was also amazing to see Michael Cera in a more serious role - with all the funny moments from his character being portrayed so superbly. Also seeing one of my favorite people/a super cool cat Tavi Gevinson on Broadway was exciting! (Rookie Mag is a fave of mine!)

After the play, I waited around a bit to meet the cast. They all signed my playbill and Tavi and I even spoke for a minute. She was just so wonderful!!
AHHH, look at us!!!!

It was an amazing night! I love seeing plays and luckily it's pretty easy to get some student rush tickets. What a fun night!
